Health Impact News Comments: Our Facebook Page on Coconut Health generates a lot of coconut oil testimonies. One recent testimony came from Debra regarding her developmentally delayed grandson, who did not talk for the first three and a half years of his life. She has allowed us to publish her testimony.

I really am a firm believer in coconut oil and originally investigated it’s uses for MS patients. My youngest son was diagnosed 5 years ago and I was looking for a way to help him. I use coconut oil in all my cooking so everyone benefits. I also have a son with diabetes and it seems to help balance his blood sugar.

But let me tell you about Matthew, my (now) 5 year old grandson. When he came to live with me, he was one cranky little boy. At 16 months, he didn’t sleep long, when he did sleep. His cheeks were always really rosy, and he had a very short attention span.

I just stepped back for a while and observed how my son was handling him, feeding him, caring for him, thinking maybe, as a new dad, and dealing with a new MS diagnosis of his own, he could have been doing something wrong. But I found nothing he was doing wrong. He was excellent with this little guy.

Still we had wild behavior, no attention span, no talking, very loose bowel movements, vomiting and red rosy cheeks. He also seemed to catch a cold at the drop of a hat. I tried what I thought was everything as far as feeding him a healthy diet but nothing seemed to help.

Having allergies of my own, far too many to mention, I started to eliminate certain foods to see if it could have been allergy related, and the only success I had with that was removing milk and changing to almond milk, which eliminated the diarrhea, but the other symptoms remained. We continued this battle for almost two years which was wearing all of us very thin. At age three and a half, there was still very cranky behavior and still no words would come out of his mouth.

I came across an article about coconut oil helping MS patients and ordered some immediately. Until its arrival, I continued to read all I could find about the oil and was more and more fascinated by it. As soon as it arrived, that jar was opened and I made my grandson some scrambled eggs, which was his favorite. He gobbled them down and went on his way. I was just very glad it didn’t change the taste enough that he wouldn’t eat it. He is very fussy. I didn’t tell anyone how I had altered his eggs, because I was only believing what I had read. This would be my proof. I am a bit of a health nut and sometimes my family and friends have a hard time dealing with it.

Well, the third day arrived. Matthew woke up and came downstairs for breakfast. I asked him if he wanted scrambled eggs, so I could feed him more coconut oil and he replied “Eggies, Mum” I almost fell on the floor. That day he just repeated everything I said. His daddy’s eyes just lit up when he came home from work and Matthew greeted him with a big hello. His crying fits and temper tatrums slowly disappeared as he stayed focused longer and longer. Slowly his little rosy cheeks gave way to a happy glowing face of a healthier 4 year old. At four and a half, he entered preschool and is the best behaved child in his class. He comes home reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing every song they learned in school. He is such an absolute joy to be around. My hat’s off to coconut oil. I don’t even want to imagine what this child’s life would be like without it.

Editor Comments: I asked Debra if her grandson had ever been diagnosed with anything that described his symptoms prior to beginning coconut oil. Her reply:

No, he was not.  The irratic behavior made me think autism, but I guess I was afraid of putting a label on it. I don’t have much faith in doctors and really didn’t want to start out this little guy’s life popping pills into him. I read every thing that I could get my hands on about treating it naturally and coconut oil was part of the remedy.

Woman Battles Brain Cancer Using Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet Without Chemo

Woman Battles Brain Cancer Using Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet Without Chemo

Alix Hayden has brain cancer, but instead of undergoing surgery and grueling chemotherapy, she’s fighting it with the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet and has been doing great so far.

Some of the most exciting research to come out in the past few years regarding the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet has been in the area of cancer treatment. The results are so promising that new “ketone” drugs are in the pipeline.

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb, and moderate-protein diet that was first developed in the 1920s at John Hopkins hospital to treat epilepsy. Some children with seizures saw great success on the diet, often where drugs had failed.

Today, the ketogenic diet principles, particularly using coconut oil as the main fat, are being used to treat neurological diseases such as Alzhemier’s, as well as successfully treating cancer.

Why Coconut Oil Is A Godsend For Female Travelers

Why Coconut Oil Is A Godsend For Female Travelers

I see more and more people online chatting about the benefits of coconut oil for the body. I have found that I have fallen in love more and more while I travel. Having just a backpack full of stuff for a year long trip is hard, especially for a female traveler. In my quest to bring the amount of stuff down in my backpack, I have stumbled upon coconut oil as the ultimate savior. I list below the different ways in which I use coconut oil while travelling. Because of its multi-purpose quality, I am able to have a toiletries bag that is absolutely tiny and contains only four items.

What Type of Coconut Oil is Best? How to Choose a Coconut Oil

What Type of Coconut Oil is Best? How to Choose a Coconut Oil

When my wife and I shipped the first “virgin coconut oil” from the Philippines into the U.S. back in 2001, there were only two other commercially available coconut oils being sold as edible oils in the U.S. market. Coconut oil was certainly not popular 13 years ago and there were few choices. If you were using coconut oil as dietary oil back then, chances are you were getting your information about fats and oils from Dr. Mary Enig. Many of her writings have been featured in the Weston A. Price Foundation over the years.

Today at the beginning of 2014, one has a plethora of choices when it comes to purchasing coconut oil. So what I am going to do in this article is give you an insider view of the current market, without mentioning any specific brands. Not all coconut oils are produced the same way and the type of coconut oil you purchase will depend on what you plan to do with it.

But first, in order to make an intelligent decision about which coconut oil best suits your needs, you need to understand what is currently in the market, and how they differ.

Woman Writes Book on Mother’s Recovery from Alzheimer’s After Starting Coconut Oil

Woman Writes Book on Mother’s Recovery from Alzheimer’s After Starting Coconut Oil

My book is called ‘Thoughts of Yesterday.’ The reason I gave my book this title is because when Mammy was at her worst with Alzheimer’s, she could still remember her first day at school, but her thoughts of yesterday were gone. Her condition deteriorated quite rapidly, as we were advised it would. She had several periods of aggression which proved very difficult to manage and ultimately sedatives were prescribed to ease the symptoms. She had repeated kidney infections, one of which resulted in her being rushed to hospital by ambulance.

Since taking the coconut oil, she has had NO periods of aggression whatsoever, and her kidney infections have become much less frequent. As a result of this, she has not had any sedatives over the last year, fewer antibiotics and also her blood pressure is perfect.

Overall, her mood has much improved, she engages better in conversation and is very happy in herself. I have no doubt that if we had not found out about coconut oil, my mother would be in a home by now.
